Andromeda Handcrafted Soap
Handcrafted Small Batch Soap
Vegan, eco-conscious, and SLS, phthalate, & sulfate free.
Color: Each bar is a one of a kind swirl of purple, green, glow in the dark, blue, and white.
Fragrance: An out of this world blend of citrus and wood notes. It starts with bergamot, lemon, lime, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, cardamom, melon, and rose. Then, base notes of musk, sandalwood, vanilla, and amber come through. Sometimes described as a more masculine scent, but loved so much by everyone that we keep selling out of our test batches.

This soap feels creamy and decadent and smells wonderful. The glow in the dark aspect is a fun twist. Highly recommend!
I love how rich and long-lasting this soap is. And the scent is divine!
My skin is super sensitive, so coming of age in the 90s meant a lot of irritation from Bath & Body Works products. I loved the scents but the body wash, etc left me with rash, itching, and discomfort. Now I’m older and have a more refined nose for scent and that’s all the better for these incredible soaps. I’m delighted to have found products that are works of art that I can enjoy daily. Each bar is visually appealing, the scents are to die for (complex and approachable) and my skin feels healthy, smooth and soft. So far Andromeda, Lucid Dreams, and Rosa Evelyn are my favorites but I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the varieties.
One thing I’ve noticed with many soaps that make earth-friendly, natural claims is that they don’t give a satisfying amount of lather. That’s not the case here— they suds up beautifully and rinse cleanly. I’m so happy with my purchases, especially the ones I’ve given as gifts as loved ones are pleased with them, too!
Avocado oil is traditionally used in soap making to increase the skin conditioning properties, and for a creamier lather. Avocado oil also has as a high content of vitamin A, D and E.
Coconut oil is a soapmaking favorite! It contributes an abundance of fluffy lather, even in the hardest of water.
Palm Oil has a slippery history, but RSPO certified palm oil helps protect the rainforests and farmer’s livelihoods, while also helping your bar last much longer in your shower.
Kaolin clay adds a little slip to your lather so your washcloth glides over your skin, while also helping the fragrance last longer in your bar.
Sodium hydroxide – often called lye – is the magic-maker in cold process soap. It’s what’s responsible for taking all those oils and turning them into soap. We formulate our soap so there’s no lye left in our bars.
Sodum Lactate is considered a humectant, which means it draws water to it, but in soap making, it helps firm up bars so they don’t crack and last longer in your shower. It’s made from fermenting corn and beets, which we think is pretty cool.
Sodium Citrate is one of two ingredients we use to counter hard water. Sodium Citrate helps balance the pH of our bars and softens the water a bit so the lather washes right off – taking the minerals that cause that hard water film on your skin with it.
Sodium Gluconate is one of two ingredients we use to counter hard water. Sodium Gluconate helps bind up some of the minerals that make water hard so the lather washes right off – taking the minerals that cause that hard water film on your skin with it. It does double duty as a gentle natural preservative, too.
Our fragrances are phthalate free and skin safe, always. We often blend our own with essential oils safe for skin. Our fragrance free bar is just that: no fragrance added at all.
We love color, but we understand that you don’t want to step out of the shower looking like a cartoon character. We use skin-safe, cosmetic-grade mica and pigments, activated charcoal. and natural clays in all our soaps.
